Fans say it was the time that Rizzo stepped up and became the leader of the Chicago Cubs. MLB Brawl looks at the 2014 fight between Anthony Rizzo and the Cincinnati Reds.

In this MLB Brawl, I revisit the classic fight between Anthony Rizzo and the Cincinnati Reds. If you want to know why I’m writing about the fights in baseball, take a look at the first Brawl, What if Kris Bryant and Yadier Molina got in a brawl, to set the stage.

Chicago Cubs fans may have a hard time remembering back to 2014, primarily because two years later, we won a World Series title. So let me set the stage for you  “Brawl” fans. In 2014, Theo Epstein and the Cubs were rebuilding. They told fans ahead of time; they were going to lose and lose a lot as they began to fit the pieces together that later became a championship team.

Unfortunately, the future “World Champions” had not reached the level of perfection; we are used to seeing from them today. The scene was set on July 10, 2014, when the Cubs were playing a five-game set on the road against the Cincinnati Reds.
